ASPCA’s Meet Your Match Programs are the trademarked and copyrighted property of the ASPCA. Animal adoption agencies have permission to reprint the program elements provided they are using the programs in their entirety, without alteration, and are giving appropriate credit to the ASPCA.
The following guidelines are intended to help you implement the ASPCA’s Meet Your Match program elements in compliance with the programs’ trademarks and copyrights.
Using Each Program in Its Entirety
Using the programs in their entirety means that you implement all of the Meet Your Match program elements, including animal assessments, adopter surveys, cage cards (including colors, names, and descriptions), and guest passes. For example, you cannot use cage cards but not use adopter surveys. Nor can you use some but not all of the cage cards.
It does NOT mean that you must implement both Feline-ality™ and Canine-ality™ . We think you, your adopters, and your animals for adoption would benefit from using all the Meet Your Match programs, because they are designed to be used together, but this is not a requirement.
Using the Programs without Alteration
In addition to using a Meet Your Match program in its entirety, you must also use the program without changing or removing any program elements. The program elements include:
Giving Proper Credit
If you promote any of the Meet Your Match programs on your website or elsewhere, give proper credit to the ASPCA. Giving proper credit includes:
